As Americans across the nation listen to the words of Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder rejecting the idea of civility it becomes harder to imagine that there may still be some Democrats who have not completely lost their grip on what little sanity a leftist could possibly have. It doesn’t make something less truthful just because it is hard to believe. As hard as it is to believe there are some Democrats who have not completely gone over the edge. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., is one of the few who have not completely lost themselves to the leftist insanity. Heitkamp recently rejected the idea that Americans can not be civil with one another until after Democrats take control of Congress again.
It was during a recent interview with CNN personality Christiane Amanpour when Hillary Clinton said, “you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Later in her interview on CNN Hillary Clinton said that civility could only return after Democrats are back in power in Congress.
Senator Heidi Heitkamp was interviewed by CNN personality Anderson Cooper Tuesday night. During a portion of the interview that conveniently did not make the airwaves Cooper said, “I’m wondering what you think about that idea, that you can’t be civil, given the rhetoric coming from the Republicans. Can Democrats, should Democrats not be civil with Republicans?”
Senator Heidi Heitkamp was very clear that she does not share Hillary Clinton’s view when it comes to come civility. She found Hillary’s belief preposterous at best as she said, “well, that’s ridiculous. I can’t imagine how you get anything done if you don’t bring civility back into politics. And that goes for both sides, ratchet down the rhetoric. I hope that we can find common ground in this country that sexual assault is more prominent than people thought it was.”
When they learned of the statement made by Senator Heidi Heitkamp, the North Dakota Republican Party said that her words were too little, too late. Members of the North Dakota Republican Party do not believe that the words of Senator Heitkamp were sincere and instead see them as an attempt to remake her image. They point to the fact that despite Hillary Clinton’s basket of deplorable statement Senator Heitkamp continued to support Clinton back in 2016.
The North Dakota GOP communications director, Jake Wilkins said, “Heidi Heitkamp has spent the last six years ignoring the will of her constituents and dutifully following her liberal party leaders like Hillary Clinton. One cable news appearance won’t make voters forget her support for higher taxes, dangerous sanctuary cities, and opposition to Justice Kavanaugh.”
